The durability of the two leggings is added together, plus an extra 5% durability.

Mobs[edit | edit source]

If a zombie, zombie pigman or skeleton is wearing armor, there is a 8.5% chance (9.5% with Looting I, 10.5% with Looting II and 11.5% with Looting III) that the mob will drop leggings upon death. It will usually be badly damaged, and may be enchanted.

Natural generation[edit | edit source]

Iron leggings can be found in 12.2% of stronghold altar chests and 26.0% of village blacksmith chests in groups of 1.

Enchanted iron leggings can be found in 13.4% of End city chests in groups of 1.

Enchanted diamond leggings can be found in 13.4% of End city chests in groups of 1.

Trading[edit | edit source]

Leather pants can be bought from leatherworker villagers 2-4 emeralds a piece. Chainmail leggings can be bought from armorer villagers 9-11 emeralds a piece.

Usage[edit | edit source]

Leggings can be placed in the 3rd armor slot of a player's inventory for activation.

Defense points[edit | edit source]

Defense points are each signified by half of a shirt of mail in the armor bar above the health bar. Each defense point will reduce any damage dealt to the player which is absorbed by armor by 4%, increasing additively with the number of defense points. Different materials and combinations of armor provide different levels of defense.

The following table shows the amount of defense points added by leggings.

Material
Leather 2 (Armor.svg)
Golden 3 (Armor.svgHalf Armor.svg)
Chain 4 (Armor.svgArmor.svg)
Iron 5 (Armor.svgArmor.svgHalf Armor.svg)
Diamond 6 (Armor.svgArmor.svgArmor.svg)

Durability[edit | edit source]

The following table shows the amount of damage each piece of armor can absorb before being destroyed.

Any "hit" from a damage source that can be blocked by armor will remove one point of durability from each piece of armor worn. Damage taken that armor doesn't protect (such as falling or drowning) will not damage the armor, even if it is enchanted to protect against that type of damage. The following chart displays how many hits leggings can endure.

Material
Leather 76
Golden 106
Chain/Iron 226
Diamond 496

Repair[edit | edit source]

Leggings may be repaired by using them along with some of their crafting material (leather, gold ingots, iron ingots or diamonds) in an anvil. Chainmail leggings may be repaired in this way with iron ingots. They may also be repaired by crafting them together with another pair of leggings of like material.

Enchantments[edit | edit source]

Leggings can receive the following enchantments:

  1. a b c d Fire Protection, Blast Protection, Projectile Protection and Protection are mutually exclusive
  2. Only from using an anvil and enchanted books.
  3. a b c Only from using an anvil and enchanted books, or by finding enchanted leggings in an End city chest.
